of the assault that killed our ambassador chris stevens and the three other brave americans and when they knew it. >> there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. there is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> it was a terrorist attack. the reason i think it clearly was a terrorist attack is because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. and against our individuals. >> ambassador rice should resign but also we should investigate and find out how high up this went and and i would hope the administration would voluntarily come forward and say whey they gave out this false information when they had to know there was so much more out there and yet they wanted to rule out terrorism from the start. >> geraldo: calling for ambassador rice's administration. what did the administration know and when can they know it? >> john: issa is on the phone from his home state of georgia. what do you think of peter king's call for ambassador rice to resign? >> i think ambassador vice a talented lady who may be a fall person for administration. she would have
of the president and white house of the murder of ambassador christopher stevens and three others. john kerry is rumored to be the president's choice to be hillary clinton's replacement. all 18 members of which, republicans and democrats, have signed a letter acceptability to the administration asking for a full accounting of the benghazi terrorist attacks and the events in yemen and egypt. the white house continues to give every appearance of stone walling, both the congress and the press. almost three weeks have passed since those attacks, and leaked from within the white house, an intelligence community suggests the obama administration has been involved in an outright cover up. there are reports tonight that officials within the administration were concerned from the very beginning about the message the white house chose to push after the attack. the attack that was spontaneous they said, and not at all the work of terrorists. here's white house spokesman jay carney back on the 14th of september. >> the incident in benghazi, as well as elsewhere, but these are all being investigated, what
that the obama administration knew within a matter of hours that the assassination of am ambassador stevens and three other americans was carried out by terrorists with ties to an affiliate of al-qaeda. now, two weeks after jay's initial denial of what the white house knew, some high ranking obama officials are beginning to contra digit the story that the president and his administration tried to sell the american public. defense secretary, leon panetta, secretary of state hillary clinton now conceding it was an act of terror. still no word, no correction from the man who steered the false narrative, president obama himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on where the obama administration funds anti-christian art, if you can call it art, and the fight with planned parenthood. we begin with the obama administration still trying to put forward a narrative that matches facts. terr
cnn's reporting, but it was found in ambassador steven's diary and believed that he was an al qaeda terror hitless. there was a question about whether he communicated that to his state department. as one would assume he would have. you just have to believe that the ambassador is afraid for his life and believes he is on a hitless and there was no discussion without with this bosses. now they want to see communication between mr. stevens and the state department prior to his murder and if there is a communication that shows the state department and the 9/11 anniversary, have he is an adequately protected, he is on the ground and trying to target the consulate, might that not have some political ramifications? >> the political ramifications will come from the voters. congress, republican leaders, outspoken conservatives who are trying to politicize all this, including mitt romney, it has backfired. this is the proper role of congress to investigate this and it should be done dispassionately. it will not be concluded by the election. megyn: i will give you the final word, ed. >> all th
of his time to chris stevens, the movie, so, why is the administration hesitant to use the word terror? a key foreign policy victory of this administration was the killing of osama bin laden. and this summer at a fund-raiser, the president said al-qaeda is on the run and we got bin laden. well, as we said that july night, the part about al-qaeda on the run didn't look that way to us. al-qaeda linked militants were there on the libyan weapons obtained after the u.s. and nato intervention in that country and now that four americans have been killed in north africa by extremist groups, the question remains. should the united states have known this attack on the american ambassador was coming and did the administration lie about intelligence that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible for his death for the past two weeks? representative mac thornberry is "outfront" tonight. good to see you, sir. >> glad to be here. >> i know this is an issue you care a lot about. you've spent time in mali in the past. you've been briefed on the situation in benghazi. at that briefing, were you told that a
attack on 9/11 was spontaneous or unexpected. ambassador stevens knew he was in danger. nothing was done by the obama white house. we will >> tonight, there is new informs on the ongoing coverup by the obama administration over the terror anac benghazi. the house oversight committee sent a letter to hillary clinton, demanding information on a long line of attacks on western diplomats and officials in libya in the months leading up to the september 11, 2012 attack. the committee has released images of the aftermath of the attacks. i will warn you,-these are very, very graphic. you are looking at pictures of just one of at least 13 documented security eveeps that took place in recent months, showing the aftermath of an attempted assassination on the british ambassador to libya in june, one block away from our benghazi consulate. the attacks led libyan security to request additional resources to the ambass dor. but the house has confirmed that the obama administration denied those requests and now ambassador chris stevens and three other americans, include it would go navy seals are dead. l
distinguished ambassador chris stevens. is there a cover-up going on here? senator ron johnson sounds off. and folks, one more time, don't forget, free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. lower those tax breaks and get rid of those deductions. it can work, i've seen it work in 1986. it'll work again. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the la
of ambassador chris stevens in libya and three of his diplomatic colleagues. he also made two important points, that americans obviously want to show great religious tolerance for the views of others, and onand wanted to dissociate the united states from that hateful video that insulted the prophet of islam. he said that there are important rights of free speech under the first amendment and we have to protect those rights, and if the government a press free-speech, it makes the world a less free place. he also had a message for iran, that while we want to negotiate through diplomacy if possible, time is not unlimited. that was a warning to the iranian government, which has been obstreperous and very difficult to deal with. i think it was a very important speech the president gave in new york. host: how about mitt romney? can you assess from what you have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is

communications between ambassador stevens and the state department. >> at a time most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country instead we've had this bizarre response which only leads me to believe, number one, there was gross negligence or incompetence involved or this administration doesn't want all of us to realize that libya may now be a failed state if the fbi agents who are well-trained can't even make it into benghazi. >> with growing calls for ambassador susan rice resign over her comments that benghazi was a demonstration spun out of control had strong defense this weekend by senior obama cam main advisor. >> i was shocked to see representative king attack ambassador rice because she was acting on the intelligence given her to the intelligence community. to say she should resign, she is one of the most remarkable splendid public servants that is thoroughly irresponsible. >> reporter: two final observations about axelrod's comments. number one, susan rice went way beyond the assessment here given by the director of national
is a millennial, steven crowder, what is millennial first of all. >> i was using my phone and people my age, probably about early mid 20's, and the general age range, and first range, late 80's, through early 2000's, depends who you ask. >> clayton: we have a new gallup poll out, this is interesting on millenials and how they'll fall in line perhaps for prol, president obama. and for president obama 58% and you framed it this way, that they are selfish and that's why they're going to vote for president obama. why is that? >> sure, most people are selfish, not singling out millennials. we tend to vote in our self-interest and tend to vote the occupy movement for more free crap not based on the constitutional parameters of government, but found principles, but what the government can give them and because they're voting that way, they're doing it wrong. >> clayton: so health care, number one, a lot of people saying in that age range of 26 years old now on their parents' health care plan because of obama care, you think that could be a big factor? >> and the way to buy someone's vote in the s
including our ambassador to libya, chris stevens and four days after they were told, intel knew there was a terrorist attack, this is what the administration sent our u.n. ambassador on the sunday shows to tell america. >> the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous, reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted of course by the video. what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi, as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. megyn: joining me now, simon rosenberg, president and founder of ndn think tank and former advisor to president clinton. mark these send, fellow at american enterprise institute and former speechwriter for president george w
three justices to leave, o'connor, suitor, stevens, all moderate republicans, they are gone. they have either gone to the democrat, suitor and stevens gave their seats to obama. the republicans who have been appoi appointed, john roberts reflect the modern republican party. mitt romney, to be sure, would nominate someone like cavanagh, a young judge on the d.c. circuit. very conservative. not moderate republicans. that's why one seat would make such a difference. >> and those two have very clear records as did john roberts and sam aledo. we knew exactly who they were and what they would do. the senate wasn't ready to really look at that record and make an issue. >> can i ask a theoretical question. there's two ways of thinking about this. there should be a deference to the executive in naming nominees that comport with the president's legal philosophy, ideolo ideology. applying confidence because they are qualified for the job and hey, this is politics and a woman's right to choose on the line, this is a war against all against all. do what it takes. which is your belief system? >> you
investigation. and look at the communiques that came from ambassador stevens. look what wa -- what was transpiring in libya. we have to realize this is a terrorist attack. this an act of war. this is not something that was carried out by some video watching benghazi-based community organizer that said let's bow flash mob the consulate in benghazi. this was a terrorist attack. bill: do you think it stops with susan rice? or does it go to the secretary of state hillary clinton or beyond that? >> this is why we need an independent council and we need the investigations to begin immediately. i think this is an issue -- benghazi-gate is the right term for this. this is very, very serious. probably more serious than watergate. and to call this a response to a video when it was obviously a terrorist attack -- and when you read some of the documentation on this, and you know that there has been other sites and locations that have bind attack in libya, when you know that the libyan government felt there was something getting ready to transpire. when you know a get know detainee was released
was offered from everyone and from everywhere. among those offering help, was ambassador chris stevens. a voice of reason and conscience, a man of love, a messenger of friendship, who came to libya following the outbreak of our freedom revolution, one who touched the people's feelings, who traveled from tripoli to them western mountains and backe and all across libya. chris stevens spoke to everyone in arabic, always smiled, and showed care. this human diplomat had found his place -- has found his place in the consciousness of the libyan people. it was a day of sadness throughout libya when he was assassinated. along with his three aides. we would like to express our deepest condolences to the american people for this grave loss. it was a loss for libya, as it was a loss for the united states of america. we stress to the united states, its government, and it people that this catastrophe will only increase our solidarity to entrench the hopes and objectives in which ambassador chris stevens believed. we shall the feed -- defeart the backboards plots of the terrorists who do not represe
is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament
away from that term and frankly if you caulk to stevens' family and the other three families, they're deceased and we can play the rhetorical plan, it's pretty clear. the libyan official, boots on the ground, said it was a terrorist act. they don't normally show up with rpgs and grenades and other things if it's going to be a peaceful demonstration. it certainly looks prearranged. who's responsible we don't know yet but we'll find out. >> it's clear now that these have become part of a dialogue in the presidential campaign. one of the things the libyan president also said to ann curry, it lacks to be a branch of al qaeda. that's something we heard after the benghazi attack happened. where do you think we are now in terms of terrorism. obviously as the president said, the traditional al qaeda as we know it seems to have been decimated. top leaders including osama bin laden are gone but where are we? >> i think again that's a statement. the ail die is the al qaeda. there are mutant forms. there are a lot of wannabes and look-alikes. i think active terrorism in spite of the fact that
would make the same statement about the people who were saying, a fastener stevens -- embassador stevens was killed, so let's walk away from libya. i cannot think that is dispensable. you have to say, which elements of pakistan are progressive that do have common interests with us? if we are to look forward to pakistan opening up, and looking forward to pakistan with an energy that is self- sufficient, and an open economy which is less susceptible to extremism in the country, i think we have to do a better job and i think many of the people in this loam have a subtle understanding and to know this, we have to do a better job who are we working with? given these fraught relations of different institutions in the country, who do we choose to work with in which way and how can we modestly work ahead on different kinds of problems? when we say, we will create a strategic partnership in 12 areas, here is agriculture, here is water, and we will do it bilaterally and we will use a one-size-fits-all institutional link, by its very nature, some of these problems are not given to that kind of stru
who led us down in been gauzy, when ambassador stevens was killed. it is not appropriate to somehow blame the state department or the white house for this. obviously, we have to do everything we can to protect our people. president obama got on the phone with the president of egypt and basically said -- you have got to do a better job -- this is my paraphrasing based on what i have read -- but basically, you have got to do a better job. this is a time for americans to band together. we are depending on those diplomats to represent us. host: eric, on the line for democrats. hello. caller: thank you for taking my call. first of all, the gop always says that there is a liberal media, but that cannot be further from the truth, because all media is corporate owned. when you are a tv person, all you are doing is what your boss told you to do. corporations are owned by rich people who, for the most part, are going to be republican, meeting that all media is right wing, or center-right -- i want to talk about iran. mitt romney do not have any reason to run for president. he is not trying to
with ambassador stevens and he was complaining we are offered of these things but the libyans are not taking and they do not know how to incorporate what they are asking for and what we are offering. the question was, what can be done? you have to develop parallel channels. task forces that co around, i think that is the best way to go right now. >> we will take you to kent state university where president obama is campaigning in ohio. it is just about to get underway. ♪ ♪ [cheers] >> hello, kent state! [cheers] hello, ohio. well, let's begin by giving brian a big round of applause. [applause] i think he has some talent. he may be going places. he sounded good appear. - up here. i also wanted to acknowledge your outstanding congressman who is here. and your mayor is here. and his wife is here. it is good to see all of you. thank you. thank you. now, let me say this. unless you live under a rock or you did not pay your cable bill, you probably are aware there is an election going on right now in ohio. i was telling the story about my campaign manager, and he was visiting with a young coup
communications from ambassador stevens reportedly expressed concern about deteriorating security in benghazi. senator bob corker is one lawmaker that doesn't want to wait for results of an internal investigation. he wants to see the cables right away. he is our guest now. senator, have you received a response from the state departments yet? >> we have not. senator isakson and i two days ago sent the letter. obviously the cables are easy to come forward hopefully this will happen soon. this is turning not something short of benghazi-gate. i wish you were at the briefing that took place. it was the most senseless, worthless briefing i ever attended. at this juncture we have four americans killed. one was widely known and highly respected individual. the media knows more about what happened than we do and we want answers. senator demint and i introduced a bill two weeks ago to get to the bottom of this. it was blocked. i will say this is now turned into a very bipartisan concern. it is my understanding today that all members of the foreign relations committee both democrats and republicans are
states ambassador chris stevens and three other americans in libya was in his words clearly the work of terrorists. >> the reason i think it pretty clearly it was a terrorist attack is because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. and against our individuals. what terrorists were involved i think still remains to be determined by the investigation. but it clearly was a group of terrorists who conducted that attack against that facility. >> a nior u.s. official tells cnn intelligence suggested within 24 hours after the attack within 24 hours extremists either affiliated or inspired by al qaeda may have been behind it. cnn's senior international correspondent arwa damon got extraordinary access to what could be considered a breeding ground for extremism inside the country. >> reporter: it may look like a sleepy beach front town, but it has reputation as a home to islamist extremist militia. some of them with links to al qaeda. these militia had allegedly left their bases but continue to haunt the streets. we tried to get access to one of these bases.
of aassador stevens and the three other americans. what do you make of thi tally s colleague reportedhree days ago who was the first with this story. whatt makes is t american ambassador dead, the administration's first impulse was to find ways to cover itself and avo acknowledging the stake the ambassador had completely inaquate security in a dangerous place. and it did that by pitting on this youtu video of the make on his way to prison and charge un other offense ordero offset the blame for s own failure protect america's am boss dor. it's disturbing. really disturbing. >> the republicans, donna, not surprisingly tarally going ter the president right now on this specific issue. listen to eric fehrnstrom, senior advisor to mitt romney. >> well, i think president obama, bill, needs to be held accountable for his administration's attempts to mislead the american people what happened in benghazi. >> and they'rehat jay rney made athe white ho, that hillary clinton made at the state department, that the u ambassador susanic made o five sunday talk shows here i the united states. they're making th
braechz, and attacks in libya leading up to the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. for example, stevens, they say, took regular early morning jogs around tripoli with members of the security detail, but according to their sources, a pro-gadhafi facebook page trumpheted those runs, posting a threat against the ambassador along with a stock photo of him. stevens stopped running for about a week. then resumed. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless, and he took the advice always of his security forces, including sometimes when they said that meetings needed to be canceled, so i think that this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security, and a failure of judgment, but not of the now diocesed ambassador. >> there were other security braechz, according to the committee and a sale that blew a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission. two rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and the convoy carrying the british ambassador was attacked by a militant with a grenad
